Hernia Repair Specialist
Dr Iraniha Hernia Repair Specialist
A hernia occurs when an organ pushes through an opening in the muscle or tissue that holds it in place. For example, the intestines may break through a weakened area in the abdominal wall.
Hernias are most common in the abdomen.
However, they can also appear in the upper thigh, belly button, and groin regions. Though the majority of hernias are not immediately life threatening, they will not go away on their own and will require surgical procedure by a hernia repair specialist to prevent potentially dangerous complications.
Inguinal hernias are the most common type of hernia. They make up about 70 percent of all hernias, according to a hernia repair specialist doctor at the British Hernia Centre. These hernias occur when the intestines push through a weak spot or tear in the lower abdominal wall, often in the inguinal canal.
The inguinal canal is found in the groins of both men and women. In men, it is the area where the spermatic cord passes from the abdomen to the scrotum. This cord holds up the testicles. In women, the inguinal canal contains a ligament that helps to hold the uterus in place.
This type of hernia is more common in men than in women and it can be detected by a hernia repair specialist. This is because a man’s testicles descend through the inguinal canal shortly after birth, and the canal is supposed to close almost completely behind them. Sometimes, the canal does not close properly, leaving a weakened spot prone to hernias.
A hiatal hernia occurs when part of your stomach protrudes up through the diaphragm into the chest. The diaphragm is a sheet of muscle that helps you breathe by contracting, drawing air into the lungs. It separates the organs in your abdomen from those in your chest.
This type of hernia is most common in patients over 50 years old. If a child has the condition, it is typically caused by a congenital (birth) defect. Hiatal hernias can be treated by your hernia repair specialist. Hiatal hernias may be associated gastroesophageal reflux (when the stomach contents leak backward into the esophagus, causing a burning sensation).
Umbilical hernias are common in children under six months of age. The defect or weakening of the abdominal wall is near or at the bellybutton. Parents may notice a bulge in or near their child’s bellybutton, especially when the child is crying.
Umbilical hernia is the only kind that have the potential to go away on its own. Therefore, umbilical hernia repair is usually not recommended for children until they are 5 years old and If the hernia has not gone away by this point, a surgery with your hernia repair specialist may be used to correct it.
Incisional hernias can occur after you have abdominal surgery. Your intestines may push through the incision scar or the surrounding, weakened tissue. If you are having some abdominal pain please don’t hesitate in contact a hernia repair specialist near you.
